Now Playing: GS News Update: Nintendo Direct: All The New Switch Games Announced At March 2018 Event

During the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, the publisher confirmed when players will finally be able to get their hands on the upcoming Switch edition of Hyrule Warriors. The game's Definitive Edition is due out on May 18.

The news wasn't accompanied by a look at any new gameplay from the hack-and-slash title. Hyrule Warriors is a Dynasty Warriors-style action game where you play as a variety of Zelda characters and take the fight to large group of enemies. The Direct event only briefly covered the game amid a flurry of other announcements, such as South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker coming to Switch.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition consists of all existing content released for the game, including DLC maps, characters, and missions. Two-player local multiplayer is supported, and you can play with a friend by each using a single Joy-Con.

This version of the game was originally announced back in January, during the surprise Nintendo Direct presentation. March's Nintendo Direct brought even more news for Switch and 3DS owners.
